    10 Hottest Singing-Rappers Right Now
    May 7, 2015 at 04:31pm
    Nowadays the lines are becoming blurred as to who is a rapper and who is a singer. Not only are genres being bent in different directions, so that it's not uncommon to find an EDM influence (or folk, if it's Yelawolf) in a rap song and vice versa, but vocals are being bent in every which way as well. Rappers are experimenting with flows and voices, like Kendrick Lamar, and they're also pushing the boundaries when it comes to being a singer.

    By now, you all don't need an introduction to Amber Rose. Like it or not, she's a big deal in hip-hop. The former stripper turned video girl first caught the eye of Kanye West in Ludacris' "What Them Girls Like" video, and the two soon began a relationship that lasted almost two years. After 'Ye, she moved on to Wiz Khalifa, whom she married two years later. Somehow between marriage and a kid, Rose continued to cement herself as one of the baddest bitches in hip-hop.

    Jhene Aiko's "Eat The Booty" Line From "Post To Be" Was Inspired By Kevin Gates
    Feb 7, 2015 at 09:07pm
    Jhene Aiko's debut album impacted last year, and while she scored a hit (and Grammy nomination) with lead single, "The Worst", most of her recent radio play has come from her feature on Omarion's surprise smash, "Posed To Be". Jhene decided to go off-brand with her contribution, introducing a playful side of herself we usually don't see on record. One line from her verse in particular inspired a double take from fans -- “Might let your boy chauffeur me, but he got to eat the booty like groceries.”

    B.o.B. is one of those artist that currently stands in a grey area: he's attained mainstream success thanks to catchy tunes, but he's also a seasoned rapper, and finds himself balancing between full-out pop music and more hardened hip-hop. So who are his main fans, the picky hip-hop heads or the avid radio listeners? On No Genre 2 he makes a plea for both.

    As always, this year's XXL Freshmen class was quite a talking point. While much was said about the cover, both positive and negative, one of the most blatant critiques of the class came from Comton rapper Game. On his recent song, "Bigger Than Me", the west coast emcee had quite a few complaints about the rappers featured, claiming that they weren't of the same caliber as his generation, as well as attacking them for being "soft". "Your Freshman cover a whole bunch of soft ass niggas," he rapped.
